My winnings, a RAK & my shabby chic pages

Hello! thanks for dropping in!

Well this week was another great week for receiving happy mail!!!

First, I received my winnings from Judys giveaway- I had seen everything on YouTube but her flowers in "real life" are just gorgeous-I can't wait to use these goodies!
Thanks so much Judy :) xx

And then... I received an AWESOME RAK from the lovely Pam (Pocono Pam on YouTube!) Check these goodies out! Pam is a great friend of mine & I love her work :) it's so cool to receive things from America that aren't in the stores here & I am able to send Pam stuff that she can't get there!

Stickles, live, laugh, love vases, hello kitty ribbon, bottle caps....

Cute little heart shaped paper mache boxes....

Frames & Prima flowers....

Gorgeous gals & apples Pam made for me on her Cricut!!!.....

Little envelopes, bling & stickers!!!..... Phew :)

Thanks a million Pam-I mailed you already on facebook I know but I just had to thank you again, xoxo

Now, for some crafts....

I'm hosting my first ever 4x4 shabby chic page swap over on the Irish website I have started receiving some amazing pages in the post and am so excited about how it's turning out :)

This week I'm going to show my page for the swap and hopefully next week I'll have the pics of everyones pages up and of our completed minis!! So exciting.... I hope everyone likes my pages-

 These are the fronts of my pages which I thought could be the covers of our books
 I added each persons initial to the cover-it's a grungeboard letter painted with metallic gold ranger paint dabber paint!
 Lots of different flowers were used, all with real swarovski centres, crochet lace, a maya road pearl stick pin & glimmermisted velvet butterflies
 Also, in this corner is one of my moms little crochet flowers which I glimmermisted to match!
 These are the backs of the pages, again with crochet lace, a flower with a bling centre, a frame pocket which I painted again with the gold dabber, a Maya road dress form that I crackle painted and also added a bit of gold paint to it!
 I also edged all the outside of the page with the gold paint
A little tag pulls out from behind the frame!

Thanks for looking :)
